Summer Salad

1/2 c. cucumber
1/2 c. cherry tomatoes
1/2 c. pear tomatoes
1 c. red seedless grapes
1/4 c. feta
1/8 t. salt
1/8 t. pepper
2 T. olive oil
1/4 c. mint leaves

1. Chop cucumber, slice tomatoes and grapes in half, layer in a bowl.
2. Crumble feta over salad, sprinkle salt and pepper, drizzle with olive oil.
3. Finely chop mint and add to salad.
4. Toss and eat.

**For best flavor, layer ingredients in order. This way, the salt lands on the feta and the olive oil seals it. Then you get a burst of saltiness with each sweet tomato and grape.

Thanks Cerissa for the inspiration for this salad!
